    I put a G19 on lay-a-way the other day at my dealer. When I went in today he had received a new G17. I am torn as to whether to get the G19 or go up to the G17. This gun would not be for carry. I have other Glocks for that. It is most likely going to be my nightstand gun.

    Which would you go with? :)

    Your answers will be 75% G19 and 25% G17.

    Well, if that ends up being the case I will just have to get the G17 just to be different. :)

    Why is the G19 so popular for home defense? It has a shorter barrel and less capacity.

    Or get some +2's for the mags that come with it. Either way, I'd go for the 19. My first Glock was a 19......and it won't be my last!:supergrin:

    the only benefit for me is the extra 2 rounds. I prefer how the 19 feels, handles, and just overall like it better.

    On another side of it, I know you have another glock for carry, but what if something happens and you have to send it in to repair. if gives you a backup concealable G19.

    just my $.02

    I like everything about the G19 except the way it fits my hand. I vote for the G17.
